One of the better days in Dead history...the 1968, 1976, 1980, 1981 and 1982 shows are all outstanding, in particular the 1980 and 1982 specimens are perhaps the best shows of those respective years, the '68 is none too shabby...pick your poison below...

10-10-1968...Mickey and the Hartbeats...Matrix...typical blazing psychadelic jams...hard to split this set up as distinct songs per say, mostly jams, check it out, it's a formative period of the core of the band...

Set 1:
It's A Sin
Next Time You See Me Jam
The Rub Jam,
Look On Yonder Wall,
Jam > Turn On Your Lovelight Jam >
Drums > Jam >
The Other One Jam >
Jam > Death Don't Have No Mercy
Dark Star Jam >
The Eleven Jam >
The Seven

10-10-1976...Oakland Alameda Coliseum - Day on the Green with The Who...this was the second of a 2 night stand with The Who...the 10-09 show is also good...the band is started to pick it up by this part of 1976...this show has been released as a Dick's Picks, but the audience is pretty damn listenable and this is the source posted...very nice Loser and a sublimely drifting Playin' are just 2 of the many highlights...

Set 1:
Might As Well
Mama Tried
Ramble On Rose
El Paso
Promised Land

Set 2:
Friend Of The Devil
Dancin' In The Streets->
Wharf Rat->
Dancin' In The Streets
Samson & Delilah
Brown Eyed Women
Playin' In The Band->
The Wheel->
The Other One->
Stella Blue->
Playin' In The Band->
Sugar Magnolia

E: Johnny B. Goode of my personal favorites...classic acoustic set with Ripple, both electric sets are hot...first set picks up steam with a real nice Althea and blazing Jack Straw (which is about as good as it gets)...Scarlet>Fire is my personal favorite version..Samson is hot, a rare Big Railroad Blues, Estimated is tight, etc,...just a great show...the caveat with 10-10 had always been the old quality bug, the acoustic set has always been crisp sbd, no problems there, the electric sets have always been splicey and inconsistent, this source does a great job to tie everything together with a good clean up...real nice results...

Set 1: (Acoustic)
On The Road Again
It Must Have Been The Roses
Monkey And The Engineer
Dark Hollow
To Lay Me Down
Heaven Help The Fool
Bird Song

Set 2:
Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo >

Drums >
Space >
Truckin' >
Nobody's Fault jam >
Black Peter >
Around And Around >
The // Promised Land

U.S. Blues

10-10-1981 Stadt Halle Bremen Germany...this was the second of two European Tours for the band in 1981, the Oops Show in Amsterdam the next week (Weir's Birthday show 10-16) is considered one of the great off the cuff appearances by the band in their history, however there's some nice playin to be found in the surrounding shows (particularly Barcelona 10-19)...this show shows us an energetic workmanlike performance from the Boys...Bird Song...LIG>Deal...rare second set Sugaree, Eyes and Other One are highlights...

Too much good music to choose from on this day. All of these shows have excellent moments. I like the '68 Matrix show, though I find other performances from that era to be far better. I really like these early '80s shows, particularly the Warfield and Frost shows. I definitely agree on that 1st set from the Frost show being one of the best of the decade.
